The Hard Translucent Arkansas stone is made of a stone called novaculite. This stone, quarried in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas and Oklahoma, is almost pure silica which makes a great surface for sharpening knives and tools.

The Hard Translucent Arkansas stone is finer than the Hard or the Soft Arkansas stone so it leaves the finest edge. Because this is a natural stone, the color of the stone varies, but it is usually white. If held up to the light, the stone is translucent. Because these stones are graded natural stones rather than produced to a certain specification, we have found that quality among stones graded as Hard Translucent Arkansas to vary to some degree. We are proud to say that these stones compare very well to what others may call Hard Translucent Arkansas Stones.

The handsome wooden box keeps the stone safe when not in use. The Hard Arkansas stone is available in 3 sizes to fit your needs. The 4" x 2" x 1/2" is a small stone that is more portable. The 6" x 2" x 1/2" is a medium sized stone that is popular due to the good size and value. If you do a lot of sharpening, you’ll appreciate the large 8" x 2" x 1/2" stone; its generous size allows for longer strokes to speed up the sharpening process.

Proudly quarried and made in the USA.
